What a delightfully rotten fare this place was! When we first arrived, we noticed that the restaurant had 40 tables. Only about 5 tables were in use, including ours. We felt that might have been about 4 tables too many. The waitress came with laminated...menus. Which is good because all too often patrons will frequently use the menus as napkins (why else, why? Did you ever stop to think why the waitress collects the menus before the food is served?) The problem with these menus is that the grade of lamination was too thick and sharp. Not only was I unable to keep My menu opened without it closing on its own, but my friend accidentally sliced his hand nearly severing her middle finger (which was really to the advantage of the restaurant because he already said what he going to do with that middle finger) We ordered the food. The food came out too fast and it was hot. This is South Florida. Nothing else needs to be hot. The pasta however hot it was, was a little bit undercooked. When we complained, the manager came out with a circus monkey on his right shoulder holding a tin cup. He told us that he cooks the pasta one way only but encourages his patrons to make full use of his kitchen if we so chose to cook our food a little more. That was so nice of him. We did just that. And it was such a 'Mentos-like' moment that we even had time to play Angry Birds on their butcher block counter. What a hot mess. We got back to the table. And noticed brand new iron ware. My fork weighed about 5 pounds. All that heavy lifting made me break into a sweat, and as a result, I think my caloric intake was net negative. But not all was perfect. The trouble in parasite began to brew when my friend spotted a cat by the wall. Upon closer inspection, it was a Wolf Cockroach. It must have weighed as much as my fork. This upset my friends wife, who immediately demanded to take her food to the bathroom to eat there. Imagine to our shock and awe when we all learned that eating food in the restaurant bathroom is not permitted. At this point she needed to just go to the bathroom to rinse her como-se-q-llama. And guess what? NO BIDET! What kind of a place was this? All she wanted to do was to rinse down there and maybe do a quick ball wash of her Ben Wahhs. She came out looking a bit apocalyptic but we quickly calmed her down. I got food stuck between my teeth. So annoying. My friend was about to give a large tip, when he discovered that someone had taken his garbage bag, filled with garbage, and threw it out, while we were all looking at my plate of sausage. Those sporty thieves! Overall, I think the lip service was by far the greatest single moment ever. We whole heartedly recommend this place not just to adults but to little children as well. Bon Apetit!More

It was longer than we would like to wait, but the pizza was good. Nice people. They said the kitchen was way behind. No problem. We just didn't want everything to come out at once and it didn't. A real neighborhood place, but friendly staff....The cabrese salad was very good.More

this is a terrible restaurant! they have roaches in their kitchen, ants on their plates, and stuff on the silverware. The pizza was overcooked, gave me a stomach ate & made me take a fat one. I will never visit this place again due to...the terrible hygiene, terrible service, and terrible food. And after all of the terrible things i went through, I was not even offered a refund. This place is F to the WTF absolutely terrible. DONT VISIT!More

This has been reliably delicious pizza. We usually order the large or extra large cheese pizza and enjoy it often. They have a pretty healthy business as the place is busy whenever we go there. We have, on occasion, branched out and ordered other things...and they have been good, as well.More

Inexpensive if you go for the early bird special. They have a 2 pizza and a drink combo which is nice. This is a neighborhood pizza joint

Hire competant drug free staff!!! And maybe actually have a Manager on more than once a week. My first time ever ordering delivery with you guys there were several problems which weeks later I am still being aggravated attempting to speak with a manager. We...live 2 minutes south of the restaurant yet it took 1 hour and 45 minutes to deliver to us and when we got it it was cold. The delivery boy showed up nodding out on drugs at my door saying sorry wrong address. Meanwhile 45 minutes into the order when the order was supposed to be here, we call and my mother was put on hold and left on hold for 20 minutes at a time we had to keep hanging up and calling back. The 4th time, I finally got on the phone and while speaking to girl, the delivery boy finally came to the door with the food an hour and 45 minutes later. When we were told It would take 45 minutes. The girl I spoke with said there was no manager going to be on until Tuesday, mind you this is a Saturday! So, the girl said I can credit you for the same meal on the house but If I needed to speak to the manager I'd have to call laater in the week. I called that Tuesday and never got ahold of a manager. Now, I just waited 3 hours until they opened, which 3pm is pretty late to open at on a Sunday. So, I figured I would be patient as I always am and have been extremely patient with this establishment. And have a late lunch. However, I am told there is no credit for the cold strombelli we paid for that day and that there will not be a manager on until 8pm. With staff which we have had this type of first impression with I am surprised you are even open for business and have not lost all your customers!More

Heard from a few different people that the pizza was good so decided to try for myself and was glad I did. Had a 1/2 cheese, 1/2 pepperoni pie. The crust was nice and thin, and light. Will definitely go back.

Another dated Tamarac restaurant that caters to the seniors who pack the place for early birds Decor is not only dated but if you look at the carpet you start to feel quesy. Well I had already ordered the pizza, so I did pick it...up. The very young girls who work there would not be hired at McDonalds - I saw one of them touch another person's pizza she was trying to cut...yuck I demanded that the guy cut my pizza (I had already paid for it but was about ready to ask for the money back). He did... they gave attitude when I reminded them again of the hot peppers that they forgot. Got it home and wow....this place has gone downhill for sure. Skimpy on the cheese, and the sauce was so bland. Good thing I had the hot peppers. I would not go back.More

We switched Pizza Stop from Ferros. Their food is better, Pizza is better and the one other thing I will say is that the staff and owner is much friendlier. At least they smile at you and make you feel welcomed. Keep up the good...service and the good food.More

Stopped in to try this place for lunch as a first time customer. Atmosphere is great. They have wall paintings of Italy, raised booths to the side. Clean. Nice place, if a little dated. Waitress was polite and for the most part efficient. HOWEVER... the...food was about the worst thing I could imagine. Order of 'homemade' gnocchis. If these were homemade, I'd never want to eat at that person's home. They were incredibly mushy - and that was the tolerable part; as the sauce tasted EXACTLY like that of Chef Boyardee. HORRIBLE. It was bland, watery and incredibly cheap tasting. It HAD to be something from a can, if not the very sauce they use in Chef Boyardee products themselves. Next up: Pizza. It's in the name of your restaurant, how do you do it wrong? Slices are thin crust, so be advised of that upfront. They were SMALL in width as well - making two slices the size of about one at any other pizza restaurant. Taste of the pizza itself was OK to fair, however, they didn't give it time to properly heat - and they actually added toppings to the pie that were COLD and didn't cook all the way through. Ridiculous. There are great pizza places about 3 miles north and about 2 miles south from here. Definitely do some homework and go to those places. I wouldn't stop here again. Rather get some food from the Publix next door and make it at home. Also to mention, the food prices on some of their other items are quite high - especially considering the taste of these items, I would have hated to pay even more and got potentially worse food.More

This was my first visit to Pizza Stop. I ordered a meatball sub to go. I asked to include green peppers, onions and other veggies on my sub. I was told it would be an additional 70 cents per vegetable. This bothered me since most...restaurants I frequent include vegetables, like green peppers on the sandwich at no additional cost. On their cold sandwiches lettuce, tomato and onion is free. I am disappointed they would not offer green peppers at least in lieu of tomatoes. The meatball sub was dry with virtually no tomato sauce and few meatballs (perhaps three cut in half). I discovered this after I left the restaurant. I would not recommend this restaurant.More
